Product Details

About the Author

Philip Sington worked as a business journalist and magazine editor for nine years. His novels include Zoia's Gold and The Einstein Girl. He lives in London.


"A remarkable novel, the first in English to give us a nuanced portrait of life in Communist East Germany, its absurdity, its menace, and its pervasive sense of betrayal." -- Joseph Kanon, author of The Good German& "The Valley of Unknowing is simply superb: affecting but never melodramatic, literary but never less than thrilling. Though Krug is self-pitying, he wins our sympathy...His story, like the manuscript he grudgingly admire, is 'truthfully, tenderly drawn.'" -- David Evans - Financial Times "Philip Sington has managed something quite remarkable...a flawless, gripping and penetrating depiction of life in the former East Germany, wrapped up as a literary thriller...His feeling for not just time and place, but atmosphere and way of life is perfect in a way that no other Western writer, not even John le Carre, has achieved." -- Peter Millar - The Oldie
